A Freeport Sunday school teacher is accused of having a sexual relationship with a teen student.

Juan Miguel Mendoza, 35, is charged with sexual assault of a child. According to investigators, the victim, who is 17 now, said she when she was 15, began a sexual relationship with Mendoza at Iglesias Bautista Emanuel church.

They met, she said, when he was her Sunday school teacher. Investigators say Mendoza had been texting the victim since she was 13 years old.

Mendoza was arrested Thursday. Bond was set at $100,000. Mendoza is in the Freeport City Jail where he is awaiting transport to the Brazoria County Sheriff's Department Jail.

Investigators say Mendoza is a suspect in a separate case of sexual assault. In that case, the victim, who is now 20 years old, alleged she had a sexual relationship with Mendoza since she was 16. She, too, says she met Mendoza when he was her Sunday school teacher at Iglesias Bautista Emanuel church.

That case is still being investigated. Police believe there could be other victims. They ask anyone with information about the suspect to please call them at 979-239-1211.
